A Balanced Budget for a Stronger America

March 16, 2015

Congressman Bruce Westerman (R-Hot Springs) and his colleagues on the House Budget Committee released the following vide on March 16, 2015, previewing the committee's proposed FY2016 budget.

Congressman Westerman's statement below highlights the needs to return power to the states as part of the budget process.

"Washington doesn’t have all the answers, and Congress should be humble enough to admit that. Our budget will respect the principle of federalism by returning authority to state and local leaders so they have the flexibility to better serve their unique communities.  This will ensure more choices and responsiveness to every American."
